Please welcome Michelle to Northern Cheapskate! She’ll be writing a couple of posts each month on all things frugal and I think you’ll enjoy her perspective.
Michelle is a CPA, wife and mom to four active kids, ages 14, 12, 7 and 4. She is interested in being frugal, self-reliant, leaving some of the excess of today’s world and working to maintain her sanity through organization, humor and trial & error.
Some of you may know Michelle from her blog Leaving Excess. When she was actively posting at Leaving Excess it was one of my very favorite resources for frugal living ideas, and I still occasionally peruse the archives.
I’m excited that she’ll be sharing her ideas here at Northern Cheapskate and hope you are, too!
